Just Let Go by Courtney Walsh

About the Book
For Quinn Collins, buying the flower shop in downtown Harbor Pointe fulfills a childhood dream, but also gives her the chance to stick it to her mom, who owned the store before skipping town twenty years ago and never looking back. Completing much-needed renovations, however, while also competing for a prestigious flower competition with her mother as the head judge, soon has Quinn in over her head. Not that she’d ever ask for help.
Luckily, she may not need to. Quinn’s father and his meddling friends find the perfect solution in notorious Olympic skier Grady Benson, who had only planned on passing through the old-fashioned lakeside town. But when a heated confrontation leads to property damage, helping Quinn as a community-service sentence seems like the quickest way out―and the best way to avoid more negative press.
Quinn finds Grady reckless and entitled; he thinks she’s uptight and too regimented. Yet as the two begin to hammer and saw, Quinn sees glimpses of the vulnerability behind the bravado, and Grady learns from her passion and determination, qualities he seems to have lost along the way. But when a well-intentioned omission has devastating consequences, Grady finds himself cast out of town―and Quinn’s life―possibly forever. Forced to face the hurt holding her back, Quinn must finally let go or risk missing out on the adventure of a lifetime.

My Thoughts
Another amazing and beautiful book from the talented Courtney Walsh!! I’m a relatively new fan (only read my first novel of hers in October) but this is my fifth book of hers and she has officially become one of my favorite authors!
I not-so-patiently awaited this book’s arrival in my mailbox and when it came I immediately set aside my current read (sorry not sorry) and dove in.
I was completely in love with both Grady and Quinn. Grady had a lot of work to do, but I loved watching him strive to be a better man and was cheering for him all the way. He always did life fast and his own way never listening or caring what others had to say but then Harbor Pointe forces him to slow down and Quinn gives him a reason to be better. His transformation throughout the book was one of my favorite parts and by the end he really was someone to admire!
Quinn is stuck, she does life by the book, and doesn’t deviate from the plan of how she thinks her life should go. Until Grady. It was such fun to watch him push her out of her normal little by little. They were as opposite as you can get but in all the right ways that complimented and challenged the other.
I absolutely loved revisiting Harbor Pointe and it’s become one of my favorite fictional towns. I love all the various townspeople and the unique flair they each brought. Especially Quinn’s Dad and the judge.
Also loved the whole Olympics aspect of the story since I’m a bit of an Olympics junkie!
I devoured this story and could stop reading because I just had to see how it would all work out! I can’t recommend Courtney’s books enough and this one is beyond amazing!
